how to disable html postings? - PHP Development

Hi there, I am wondering how to prevent that users can post html through a form. I process the form with php and save the date to a db. There are a couple of sites I have already seen such thing. No matter what you do, it is not possible to submit html commands. Thats exacly what I want to do for my site. Can anybody point me into the right direction on how to "disable" that? Thanx for your help, Merlin...

    Thats exacly what I want to do for my site.

    Can anybody point me into the right direction on how to "disable" that?

    If you want to display the tags (actually show <tag>), use
    htmlentities(). If you want to remove the tags, use striptags().
